http://chicagoist.com

Logan Square Kitchen has had a tough first year. Despite their immense success, the support of their alderman and lots of love from the Chicago food press, the shared-kitchen concept simply doesn't fit in with current Chicago zoning laws, which can't seem to decide whether the spot is a shop, a restaurant or a production space.
